Which Trust or Will Can Best Serve Your Interests?
An Estate Planning Attorney Can Help You Protect Your Family With a Will
Having an estate plan is an effective way of making sure that your family is protected in the event that something happens to you. When a person dies without a will or an estate plan in place (intestate) your family may have to endure unneeded stress, long-lasting family strife and extra expense. Worse, they will be needing to deal with these issues at the worst possible time, when they are grieving a loss.
Anyone over the age of 18 should have a will, even if it is a simple will.
The law office of C. L. Crawley Jr., P.C. can help you understand the components of an estate plan and provide you with guidance related to wills and trusts. Our lawyer is experienced in probate administration and is skilled in obtaining results that have worked for his clients and their families.

- There are trusts to provide for an adult child with special needs.
- There are education trusts, land trusts, revocable and irrevocable trusts.
